Today's classrooms have students with very different ability levels, backgrounds, knowledge, skills, motivation, and language proficiency. The ongoing challenge for teachers is to differentiate or adapt instruction to respond to the diverse academic needs found in their mixed-ability classrooms.
This three- day series is designed to provide classroom teachers with practical and easy-to-use instructional strategies and techniques to help meet the needs of students of various ability levels. The workshops will be presented by a classroom teacher experienced with full inclusion, identified special education, "average" and gifted students, and will offer a variety of learning options designed to challenge and maximize the growth of all students.
